The offshore-decommissioning market, from the recent research reports, is anticipated to grow from USD 5.2 billion in 2021 to USD 9 billion by 2030 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.10%. Decommissioning is the last stage of execution of any offshore oil and gas project.
A procedure like safe plugging of the wellbore in the earth’s surface and disposing of the equipment used in the offshore production of oil and gas are the most important stages of decommissioning process. To maintain the safety and stability of the offshore environment, decommissioning operations are very helpful.
